Google Home wants to have a center space in your home, always ready to help with a simple voice command.

But what exactly will you be able to do, particularly when it comes to the apps and services you use every day? Google has an official list of the apps that work with Home and perform tasks based on what you tell them to do.

Google Home is part of a new batch of new hardware that’s all tied together with Google services and the Google Assistant. So while the underlying technology is interesting, it’s how much you can do that will determine how compelling this will be for everyday use.

Here’s the current list of supported apps, which Google of course hopes to grow as more third-party developers and services jump on board.
